a different way against the six-year itch? >> i'm not surprised at all. don't forget, i worked in the clinton white house in 1998, when for the first time in roughly 70 years, the party that held the white house actually picked up seats in a second-term, mid-term election. and the reason was, if you think back to '98, it was because president clinton was under siege by house republicans looking to impeach him. and the american public basically said, you know what, that's just gone a little too far. and they went and rallied behind the president and his party. i see a parallel this time around. we still see republicans beating up on the president, no matter what he does. and i think there's going to be a backlash against that again. just like we saw in 1998. and i think there is reason to believe that the midterm elections for the house this time will be like 1998 for the democrats, where we will see democrats even in an incumbent president's second term, mid-term election, picking up seats. and that has everything to do with president obama's legacy and treatment. of course he's going to want

when bill clinton was president, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good jobs. we need to make america a magnet for good jobs, equipping our people with the skills required to fill the jobs. making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things we should be pushing ourselves to think about and work on every single day. that's what the american people expect. that's when i'm going to work on every single day to help deliver. so i need everybody who is watching today to understand we've got a few days, congress can do the right thing. we can avert just one more washington-manufactured problem that slows our recovery and bring down our deficits in a balanced, responsible way. that is my goal, that's what would do right by these first responders, these what would do right by america's middle class. that's what i'm going to be working on and fighting for, not just over the next few weeks but over the next few years. thanks very much, everybody. thank you guys for your service.

. because remember, in '95 or '96 with -- under the gingrich/dick armey congress bill clinton was able to force them to raise the minimum wage and there were those referenda you talked about. one of the key points that ought to be made and one of the reasons why older studies -- we no longer -- the minimum wage does not apply very much in manufacturing. when you are dealing with manufacturing, which is done across national lines, there could be some negative economic effect in terms of transferring out. we know people are ready to move jobs out. but overwhelmingly today, minimum wage jobs are in the service industries. if the restaurant down the street is charging a little more because of wages, you can't go to malaysia for a sandwich. and so it's food service. the supermarkets and restaurants. if you look at where the minimum wage has an effect, it is in those areas in america that are really not subject to foreign competition. because they're not making things. they are performing a service for which people need to be physically present. this is part of the test of whether or not the

was in the majority party. speaker gingrich was the speaker. he worked with then-president bill clinton. we balanced the budget five of those fourteen years. it meant that there was compromise. this requires compromise. this requires republicans stepping forward with some ideas about how to keep essential services of government running at the level that people have been accustomed to. this is not rocket science. this is people coming together the way that other congresses have done to solve big issues. i suggest that my former colleagues on the republican side go see the movie "lincoln," because in the movie "lincoln," it shows how hard it was back then to get things done. but what lincoln did is he gathered people around him the way that i believe president obama is doing by calling republicans, talking to them, trying to work with them. and when that happens, big things get solved. the fiscal cliff got solved because people started talking to one another. so this can happen again. yes, ma'am. >> yes, have your phones been ringing from members of the public? and if so, what are they saying? >> i'm
